Application: Ultrafiltration Pilot System for Secondary Wastewater (Treated Sewage)
Water Challenges: Ultrafiltration pilot systems are utilized for the testing of contamination within secondary wastewater or treated sewage. Treated sewage consists of high concentrations of microorganisms, bacteria, and viruses, which all have a huge potential for producing diseases when exposed to humans. To make matters worse, treated sewage has a tendency to infiltrate waterways and further pollute these water bodies. In order to prevent these activities from occurring, secondary wastewater is treated with water treatment systems such as ultrafiltration which is highly efficient in eliminating contaminants found in treated sewage.
Applied Solution: Pure Aqua manufactured and supplied an ultrafiltration pilot system for a municipal project in California at 43200 GPD.
The UF cleaning system was designed with the capability to clean one ultrafiltration module. The system came complete with a SS pump, 5-micron cartridge filter, and a 50-gallon tank. Pure Aqua, Inc. manufactures and supplies a full line of Ultrafiltration Systems. UF is a membrane separation process driven by pressure which takes out suspended or particulate matter from water. A UF is found to be extremely reliable compared to a conventional multimedia filter, which takes out approximately 10 micron or larger matter, where a UF membrane pore size ranges from 0.01 to 0.10 micron. UF membranes also have the power to efficiently remove bacteria and most viruses. Ultrafiltration systems are designed with numerous membrane filtrations where hydrostatic pressure pushes solvents against a partially-porous membrane. They have the capability of blocking large suspended particulates and solids while allowing water and solutes with a reduced molecular weight to be carried through the membrane. Industry and research take advantage of this separation process for mainly purifying and concentrating protein solutions. Ultrafiltration can be compared to microfiltration, nanofiltration or gas separation, except it is dissimilar in the molecule sizes it rejects. Ultrafiltration systems have exceptional advantages such as a tiny nominal pore diameter (0.03 µm), basic, vertical, modular design which delivers low-cost compact systems, and is frequently back washed and air scoured to improve performance and eliminate the fouling layer to lengthen operating life.

Pure Aqua, Inc. designs and manufactures water treatment systems in addition to microfiltration and ultrafiltration pilot system. This microfiltration and ultrafiltration pilot system was manufactured for the state of California. The purpose is to treat waste water while also achieving title 22 certification from the state. The membrane module has the capacity to filter 30 gpm. A unique option about this system is that the control panel can be controlled remotely from a PC.
